“In Mormondom, there is a social expectation–particularly among the females–to put on a mask, say ‘Yes’ to everything that comes at her and hide the misery and pain.

I think the cultural issue is very real. There is the expectation that you should be happy, and if you’re not happy, you’re failing.”
